Re: [Tennis] Misc. Results for Indians abroad...

@Rajiv—I’ve often wished here that results of singles and doubles be in separated threads, but I understand the logistical difficulty. I have no interest in following doubles results, not even at slams, let alone lower tournaments. Thanks for the empathy.

Re: [Tennis] Misc. Results for Indians abroad...

@Dinesh, is Ms. Balu having a career week in doubles? I was excited to read your opening line, but it seems she’s having success in doubles. Meh!

Re: BWF Thomas & Uber Cup Finals

Really? Even our own forumite had predicted a 3-0 win. Or, at least its probability. Did anyone* even think that India will win the World Cup especially beat the mighty Windies in the final? Next they will “demand” plots, awards, and money. Of course, they should and will be recognized, but let’s no...

Re: Indian Premier League (IPL)

I’ve often wondered: with a rare exception or two, generally our fast bowlers are all Muslim. Is it a coincidence? Or, diet, gene, etc. Any theories out there?

Re: French Open 2022

If Ramkumar doesn’t win this match, he has no business playing slams. And, no excuses would suffice. C’mon, Ramkumar, please give Indian tennis something to cheer about that is desperately needed.

Re: Indian Sporting Achievement of the Year

Why is 1983 World Cup cricket win not listed by either Rajit or PKB?

Re: ATP/ITF/WTA tournament calendar updates

Sameer, just curious—why add the word “Southern” city? Would it not have been enough to welcome a tournament back to India?

Re: South Africa In India 2022

I think resting the seniors is fine. There are two problems though—a couple of them need to be rested forever. And, asking Dhawan to lead. Pandya has earned a consideration as a leader.

Re: BWF Thomas & Uber Cup Finals

Beating USA in women’s badminton with their home grown Asian talent is no gimme. I’m curious how we will perform.
